As one of the few British royal family members with a personal Instagram account, Princess Eugenie gives us a regular sneak peek into her day-to-day. Whether it’s posting about her work with The Anti-Slavery Collective, her role as Director of Hauser & Wirth art gallery or her very relatable parenting moments with son August (with a second child due this summer!), fans can’t seem to get enough of the royal member’s life. One thing we’re curious about, however, is Princess Eugenie’s net worth. Here’s everything we know about the royal’s assets, inheritance and residence.
What’s Princess Eugenie’s Net Worth? Everything We Know About the Royal’s Assets
1. What is Princess Eugenie’s net worth?
Per Celebrity Net Worth, Princess Eugenie is worth around $1 million, whereas Town & Country magazine puts the royal’s net worth closer to $4.8 million. Why such a discrepancy? It probably has something to do with the nature of the two trust funds set up for her—more on that below. The royal’s net worth also includes her salary as Director at Hauser & Wirth.
As the younger daughter of Prince Andrew, Duke of York and Sarah, Duchess of York, Princess Eugenie is eleventh in line of succession to the British throne. But because she is not considered to be a working royal by the Crown (a distinction that only applies to 11 members of the royal family), she does not receive any money from the Sovereign Grant, aka money funded by UK taxpayers that is used by the royal family to pay for any expenses related to the royal’s official duties.
2. How much does she make as Director at Hauser & Wirth?
Princess Eugenie has held the title of Director at Swiss art gallery Hauser & Wirth since 2015. While we don’t know her exact salary, it’s estimated by Glassdoor that a director-level position at the company pays nearly $270,000 per year. In addition, employees that hold that title may also acquire about $115,000 in additional pay from things like stock, commission, bonuses and profit sharing.
3. What about her husband’s net worth?
Princess Eugenie’s husband Jack Brooksbank works for Discovery Land Company (DLC), reports Town&Country magazine. The real estate development company is owned by Mike Meldman, a former partner of the George Clooney-founded Casamigos tequila brand where Jack served as brand ambassador for many years. Due to his job at DLS, Brooksbank and family will reportedly split their time between the UK and Portugal, per The Telegraph. (Although there are rumors brewing that the family might also move to the United States, following the steps of the Sussexes.)
4. Princess Eugenie Has Multiple Trust Funds
Princess Eugenie is a beneficiary of not one, but two trust funds. The first comes from her great grandmother, The Queen Mother, and the other from her mother, Sarah Ferguson, who used funds from her divorce settlement with Prince Andrew to set up a trust for her daughters.
While the exact amounts and access details of these two trusts are unknown, The Guardian estimates that Princess Eugenie and her cousins (not including William and Harry) will “receive bequests running into several millions each,” from the Queen Mother’s trust. It has also been reported that part of Sarah Ferguson’s divorce settlement of an estimated $4 million will be split between Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice in a trust set up for them.
In addition, Princess Eugenie comes from some pretty wealthy parents, who’s combined net worth is estimated to be around $6 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth (and it’s likely that royal sisters stand to inherit a good portion of that).
5. Does Princess Eugenie own any real estate?
According to Cosmopolitan, Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank lived in Frogmore Cottage for a period of time. Sound familiar? It used to be the residence of the Sussexes. But Princess Eugenie and Jack recently and quietly moved into Nottingham Cottage, a former residence of the Prince and Princess of Wales as well as the Sussexes. This piece of property located on the grounds of Kensington Palace in Central London is a part of the Crown Estate. However, just because the Princess and her husband reside there, it doesn’t mean that they actually own their home (it technically belongs to King Charles).
